Our house was featured at the 5th annual Echo Park Historic Home Tour and we really enjoyed being a part of it. At first, we were a little freaked out that half of Los Angeles was going to crawl through our home, but it wasn't like that at all. There were a little over 400 people but their arrivals were staggered, and then they were gently ushered in by very knowledgeable docents. We really felt the pride of ownership with our sweet, little house.

Mary Had A Little Lamb and her friend the Kangaroo had a wonderful time trick or treating this year. Jemma began to grapple with the idea of things being scary for fun - like the big Frankenstein head in the bowl! So she would say things like, "I was scared but I'm not scared anymore because I'm a big girl." We never give Jemma candy but c'mon, it's Halloween! The girls enjoyed munching on their lollipops and Jemma particularly enjoyed her Twix bar. But more than anything when you ask her what her favorite part of Halloween was she says, "My freckles." Indeed.
